Have you ever thought about starting a small business? How would you like to get one off the ground over a weekend? Startup Weekend is coming to Providence on October 5-7, 2012. The event will connect local students, entrepreneurs, developers, designers and startup enthusiasts with mentors and resources.
Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. The weekend events are centered on action, innovation, and education. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through testing, business model development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos to a panel of potential investors and local entrepreneurs. Participants are challenged with building functional startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks.
